Master Class Series Announced for Spring!

In a lead-up to the 2011 festival, The San Francisco Improv Festival is excited to announce its Master Class Series of workshops!  As part of our continuing effort to bring the best in improv and sketch training to the Bay Area, we are pleased to offer the following workshops this Spring:

  • April 23rd & 24th – Improv Master Class with improv guru Armando Diaz. Reserve your space HERE!
  • May 21st & 22nd – Master Workshop in Sketch Writing with award-winning comedy writer, 30 Rock’s Kay Cannon. Tickets go on sale April 29th.
  • June – Freestyle Rap Improv intensive with Anthony Veneziale of SF’s very own The Freeze! {Tix on sale soon!]


    He’s back! After selling out his last workshop, ‘Improv Bootcamp’ at SFIF 2010, Armando Diaz is returning to San Francisco to teach a master class on the monologist-driven improv format popularly known as “The Armando”.

    A Chicago native, Armando Diaz studied improv under Del Close at the ImprovOlympic, Mick Napier at the Annoyance, and graduated from the Second City Conservatory. He performed in and helped create one of the most popular improvised longforms in Chicago, “The Armando Diaz Experience.” For the last decade, “the Armando” has been performed weekly in Chicago, and is now taught and performed in many other cities including Los Angeles and New York.

    Don’t miss this rare chance to study with one of the most accomplished teachers in improv!
